An international conference on the past, present, and future of medieval studies in Europe organized by Professor Meredith Cohen (Art History, UCLA) and Professor Zrinka Stahuljak (CMRS-CEGS Director). Bringing together scholars of medieval France from the Anglophone and Francophone worlds, the conference will honor the legacy of John W. Baldwin who bridged the two and look into the future of medieval France in the global context. What does it mean to study medieval France today, when academic research and funding trends increasingly seem to decenter France? While this conference focuses on France, the reflection is relevant for all of Europe. Why and how, then, should we study medieval France and Europe? How can we reform or decolonize the medieval European fields from within while remaining true to the time period, its geographies, mentalities, and connectivities?
The conference will be held on the UCLA Campus , third floor Royce Hall Humanities conference rooms on February 23-24.
“Barlaam and Josaphat,” a concert in conjunction with the conference by the Dialogos Ensemble, led by Katarina Livljanić, will be held at the Getty Center on February 25 from 3-4:15 pm.
